Although this is a business that works off the misery if others, Western Loan and Jewelry has been one of the better outfits. This business was started by the Kagan family on J street between 7th and 8th. When I was young I went with my father and my uncle to this business since it was in close proximity to our families hotels (the Sierra. and Fairmont hotels). It is the late 1950's and I learn the practice of negotiating sales prices by watching and listening to my father and uncle work with Mr Kagan. I purchased my first drumset at Western and used the same negotiating tactics that my father and uncle used. Mr. Kagan at first was angry but recognized my father and played the game. I got my drumset for the price I wanted to pay. The new owners also negotiate pricing. A few months back I wanted a Sound bar for the TV. They had a listed price, I offered a lower price and said tax included, they accepted and I paid. Western continues to be Sacramento's best Pawn Shop option.
